Journal Entry 1 by DendriticTrees from Calgary, Alberta Canada on Sunday, March 18, 2012

5 out of 10

Short stories one the titular theme, selected by Anne McCaffery. From the blurb:

Here there be no dragons!
Instead there are:

Enchantments
Things magical and strange
Devils and Demons
Professors and Potent Powers
A Pompous Bishop
Witchcraft and Wizardry
The King in Yellow
Bodychangers
An Exorcist
Magicians and their Magicks

I've had this collection of short stories for years. It wasn't in great condition when I bought it and it didn't improve. I finally got my hands on some bookbinders glue, so the spine and torn pages have been repaired. Hopefully it holds up for you.

I found the quality of the stories to be a bit mixed, but the very first poem is beyond hilarious.

Enjoy it.

Picked up this book at the Calgary BookCrossing June meet-up. A fantasy short story anthology. I don't really recognize any of the authors, but it should still be a good read.
